Chelsea cannot be blamed for Paris Metro incident

 Arsenal legend Thierry Henry insists Chelsea cannot be blamed for last month’s Paris Metro incident.

A group of supporters were filmed refusing to allow a black man on to a train following the Blues clash with Paris Saint-German last week.

But speaking on the Jonathan Ross show, Henry said: “You can’t have a go at Chelsea because it is difficult to control who is going to travel.

“I’ve played games away from home in Europe, in countries that are not very clever. A lack of education can be the thing.

“You play a game and you try to concentrate and keep your composure and what you hear sometimes is ‘black this’ and ‘*****’ and ***** chants, and people spitting at you when you take a corner kick.

“It is not easy, it is not easy. That has to stop and what has to be done for it to stop? I don’t know. You need to have a zero tolerance, I believe in that.

“I did encounter it and it is not easy to deal with, I’m telling you. I’m a human being and that’s not the type of thing you want to hear.”
